Ecuador: Tensions flare after Correa appears in court

Former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa's appearance in court attracted a demonstration and counter-demonstration in Guayaquil on Monday. Correa had to be ushered into court under riot police shields, as supporters and detractors of the ex-leader entered into a fracas with security forces. The former president is testifying in the PetroChina corruption case, regarding alleged irregular... Еще payments and presale agreements with the Chinese petroleum company. Earlier in the day, it was announced that Correa would be prevented from returning to power, after voters reinstated the two-term presidential limit which the former president had abolished in the 2015 constitution.
